Anyone Have Trouble With Corn Too?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am still a complete newbie to this stuff. I just received a negative biopsy but positive test from Enterolab and have been gluten free for a little over a week now. I was lucky and seemed to be responding pretty quickly and was feeling a little better everyday and was feeling very encouraged. Then on Friday at a friends I was so focused on avoiding the pizza they were eating that I ate a bunch of popcorn. A chiropractor that does NAET muscle tested me some weeks ago and said I was very allergic to corn. Wasn't sure whether to believe it or not since it's not "scientific", but I must admit I think she's right. A week ago I ate some corn chips and my stomach immediately did somersaults so then avoided it for a while and my body has not been happy w/me since Friday. I couldn't sleep that night hardly and when I did wake up I had a dry swollen sore throat, a runny nose and felt my mental state foggy and depressed again. First I thought maybe I was getting a cold, but now thinking it was the corn. Am I imagining this, or can a corn allergy really bring those symptoms on and that quickly? Anyone else have a problem w/corn and what kind of symptoms do you get from it. I'm going to continue the NAET in the hopes of eventually getting to eat it again, so we'll see. Any experiences would be appreciated! This whole food allergy thing is still a little weird for me to comprehend.

Thanks!

Mindy

I have been watching the effects of corn also. Have been sneaking some in lately and it has to go. Popcorn especially messes me up and fritos (both snacks I used to eat)..

Could you explain the NAET?

I have also noticed my sleep isn't as long after I have had corn. B)

There are quite a few Celiacs/gluten intolerant that are allergic to corn. Fortunately I just have a corn allergy.

Symptoms with corn allergy can vary from person to person. Indigestion is a common one as well as hives, bloating, swelling, angioedema, itchy, rashes, loss of coordination, brain fog, confusion, disorientation, dizziness, headaches, migraines.

Some people have had good results with NAET and some haven't. I do wish you luck with it.

If you need some more information about corn allergy, go to the link at the bottom of my signature. That site has links to reliable sources.

    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.      
    • Nice to know that Disney makes an effort to take care of people with allergies or special diets (like gluten free!): https://publicaffairs.disneyland.com/walt-disney-parks-resorts-receives-honors-allergy-friendly-fare/
    • Wow, I also had pyloric stenosis that was misdiagnosed for some weeks as an infant (and almost died from it).  I also have Raynauld’s and I started following celiac diet, finding an immediate improvement of my symptoms.  I thought I was the only one that had all 3 of these diagnoses.   Interesting.
    • If you are lucky enough to travel in the Spanish-speaking world, just about anywhere you go, you will very likely run into a some version of chicken and rice, or ‘Arroz con Pollo’ as it appears on countless menus. This Cuban-style version relies on annatto oil to give it a red color. You can make your own annatto oil by putting achiote chili seeds in vegetable oil and heating it up for a few minutes over the stove. Cool and store. This version of chicken and rice is tasty, gluten-free and keeps well in the freezer. View the full article
    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.
